Asbestos <1% Wallboard Systems and Lead Work Practices Refresher
This refresher course for building maintenance and alterations staff provides information and specific procedures to reduce exposure to asbestos and lead containing wallboard systems in University buildings. Instruction covers recognizing the types of regulated building materials (asbestos, lead, PCBs, silica); the health effects, routes of exposure, engineering controls and work practices, and procedures to prevent exposure; proper use and limitations of personal protective equipment, and building signage and warning labels. Hands-on practice is provided for planning, setting up, using, cleaning up or disposing of protective equipment and containment. This course is not intended to cover abatement or cleanup of materials containing more than 1% asbestos. This course exceeds the requirements for annual Asbestos Awareness training.
